Josh Neuman, founder of T-shirt brand Chummy Tees commented on the findings: “Our research reveals the most popular brands to sell online, with fascinating differences in popularity between eBay and Depop. While Nike ranked highest, Zara is surprisingly the most-listed on Depop, which is popular among Gen Z and Gen Alpha.

“The data also reveals that brown, beige, and multicolored clothing is easiest for sellers to shift. These findings offer insight into the most popular items to sell online in 2024 when side hustles are becoming increasingly popular in the face of spiraling living costs.”
